Laundry room tie in to 90 year old soil line


You can use a 4x2 san tee instead of the wye, it will gain you an inch or two in elevation. 18" is the max. height for the trap
Stick a 2x4 under the branch for the toilet if you don't wan't to go the riser clamp route.
I like to use a small angle grinder for cutting old pipes. Blades are cheaper then sawzall blade. Less vibration, no chance of crushing the pipe (which I've done). Just be sure to use safety gear

@ Beepster, If you read my list of handy tips, you can send me a check for $99.95. I got to pay my over priced CPA

Sounds good. There is a vent that travels up next the old soil line and it goes all the way to the roof. Its the vent for the current washer drain in the basement...so I'll just use that.

Thanks for everyone's help/input. As a DIYer, I really appreciate the advice.

That washing machine line should run independently back to a 3" line though
